Announcing the Winners of the Nigera Photo Contest!!

Dear Readers,

My apologies for the long absence! I've had work to do (shocking I know), but that doesn't excuse my neglect of this popular contest.

So! The winners!

OVERALL, and LANDSCAPE: with 8 comments, is by Katherine, with this beautiful sunset on the way to Gwarinpa!


PEOPLE: There was a TIE for this category, which is not surprising considering how vibrant the people of Nigeria are!

The tie is between "No Standing" by Simona and "Her Shadow" by Jeff!

No Standing

Her Shadow


This photograph was by a young expat! Fiona! Who took "Beads"in her first week in Abuja! Just goes to show that the country makes an impression on everyone--and quickly!!

I hope all of you enjoyed the contest!! Let me know if you have other pictures or articles about Nigeria that you'd like to share!



  1. Hi!

    I came across your blog while searching for perspectives on women in international security. I'm a Junior Editor at Gender Across Borders ( and I would love to get in touch with you about contributing an article on a series of articles I'm organizing about the role women play in bringing and maintaining peace in conflict zones. Please feel free to contact me at!

    All best!
    Kate Wiseman
